Wake me when we get to web113.0. I’ve got that locked up.
Oh yeah, that’s right, you registered that domain.
I’ve run across quite a few netizens that wouldn’t be able to pass a Turing test — and I’m pretty sure they were technically human beings, as I’ve run into their spiritual brethren here in meatspace as well. I think the “cogito ergo sum” explanation test is doomed to failure as a means of separating humans from automation scripts.
On the other hand, it still might provide the positive results we’d need. It might not only keep out automation scripts, but also many of those humans who would (or could) not contribute meaningfully and positively to a discussion. It might also help keep out those idiots who cannot tell the difference between others who contribute positively and meaningfully and those who do not.
Okay, I’m for it. The only problem, then, is figuring out how to automate validation.
A nice unintentional side effect, yes.
But if we could figure out how to automate validation, then a bot could figure out how to answer the question. Catch-22.
Yeah, I thought about that fact right after I hit “Submit”, but decided I didn’t want to screw with my dream of a better Internet — so I ignored it.
this is hilarious dad. and by the way my entire essay would be: define existence.
I think we have a winner for maximum value in minimum verbosity with that one.

Yeah, inboundpass, but it would leave a beastly mark.
